Happy Thankfulnessfeeling Day!

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Mmmmm, gourds!… in which we Americans kick off the holiday season with the traditional Stuffing of the Face.

I hope you’ll pause a moment and feel lucky to have what you have, and realize that there were times in your life when you didn’t have it so good.

For instance: Earlier this week, I bought a pecan pie, as required by Texas law, and today, my wife’s customers at the beauty shop gave her THREE more pies — which makes us a four-pie family this holiday.

For which I am thankful.

And this year I have a job which just keeps getting better, and I’m also getting better at my music projects, and my wife and I just celebrated 13 years of marriage, and we have two beautiful and hilarious doggies, and we have an appreciation of life and the arts and entertainment.

And a lot of people don’t.

So look around you and like it.

Feels good, right?

Movin’ On Up

Happy Congratulations to Me, Happy Congratulations to Me ... ! The only thing worthy of posting this week is that I got a promotion at work after being there only ten months. It’s not a huge promotion, but it’s a transfer with more responsibility, and a good strategic move for advancement later on.

Plus: It’s more money, it’s still just 2.5 miles from home, and my boss isn’t Chucky.

So I’m happy.

Bonus points: The picture above is the poster that Lisa, one of my department-mates, made when she heard about my promotion!

Isn’t it great working with fun, considerate people?

Yes. Yes, it is.

(BTW Remember that when ever I’m not posting here, I’m posting on Twitter & Facebook, and “DJing” (playing some of my favorite songs for your listening pleasure) on Blip.fm, all of which filters through to my sidebar here at the right. So keep coming back here. Seriously.)

Birthday!

It’s Karlyn’s birthday! If you know her, personally or from reading about her here — or if you don’t know her at all — leave her a comment wishing her a happy one!

Yes, I haven’t posted in a while – I’ve been working on lyrics for my music, taking piano lessons, giving computer lessons in return for piano lessions, working part-time, trimming tree branches away from the house, helping my wife cope with her evil step-siblings who are bullying her mom, DJing on Second Life, DJing on Blip.fm, posting things on Twitter and Facebook, and last Friday I cooked a huge pot of my signature beef vegetable soup, as is traditional on the first cold weekend that I have time.

Eh, who am I kidding — I could have posted but I was just dragging butt.

And besides: Look over to the left of the page: my Twitter & Blip.fm posts show up in the sidebar, as well as on Facebook, so it’s just as good as blogging, except you don’t get to listen to me blather on at length about things of no importance.

Like for instance.

Come to think of it, that makes it BETTER than blogging.

ANYWAY:

I have emerged from semi-exile to wish Happy Birthday to two of my readers (which means, to about half of the reading audience that I have left): Former co-worker Todn8r, and longtime blogging friend in Norway, RennyBA

Hope you two make the best of your respective days!
